Butterfinger Snickerdoodle Cookies

Stack-of-Snickerdoodle-cookies

Snickerdoodle cookies are great for making on a whim because they’re made with basic pantry ingredients that are generally on-hand.

Except for one ingredient, the cream of tartar.

The one and only reason I have cream of tartar in my cupboard is so that I can make snickerdoodles.

In this recipe, Butterfinger bits are added to the mix. yum.

When making these yummies, I always buy twice the amount of Butterfinger bits needed for the recipe because I need “back-up”.

Back-up for when I’m craving something sweet and remember that Butterfinger bits are in the pantry.

Back-up for when I grab a spoon and open the bag of Butterfinger bits saying to myself that I’ll just have a spoonful.

And back-up for when all of the Butterfinger bits are gone before making the cookies.

Well needless to say these cookies are insanely tasty, especially when they come out of the oven while they’re soft….
